Show Notes:

In this encore podcast, Jack is joined by Christophe to offer a fresh take on the consumer's need for confidence, and how it drives disposable hygiene market trends.

Exploring the Consumer’s Need for Confidence

As article producers, you want your consumers to have confidence (trust) in the performance and safety of your disposable hygiene products and your brand. But there’s another angle to consider: How can diapers, pads, and other products give their users confidence in themselves and increase their freedom to enjoy life?
